    The Opioid Spoon Project is an artist-led movement that is hoping to spark a bigger conversation about the dark reality of the opioid crisis.

    The Gateway Pundit spoke to Domenic Esposito, the Boston-based founder of the project, to learn more about what they are doing.

    To raise awareness of the epidemic, the organization creates 10 foot long, metal, 700 pound sculptures of the sort of spoon that addicts use to cook heroin before injecting it.

    The Opioid Spoon Project has primarily been taking aim at the Sackler family — for now.

    In 2007, months after pleading guilty to criminal charges that the Sackler family company, Purdue Pharma, had mismarketed OxyContin, the Sackler’s founded another company called Rhodes Pharma. Rhodes produces generic opioids such as oxycodone, morphine, and hydrocodone. According to a report from the Financial Times, between the Rhodes and Purdue, the Sackler family is responsible for approximately 6% of all opioid prescriptions nationwide.

    According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, 80% of heroin addicts first started by using opioids.

    Last year, the Opioid Spoon Project left one of their sculptures in front of the offices of Purdue. Earlier this month, they left one outside Rhodes.

    Speaking to the Gateway Pundit, Esposito said that the spoon project began, in terms of construction, in April of last year. Each spoon takes approximately six weeks to create.

    When asked what motivated him to begin this project, Esposito explained that it was “a lot of things — but primarily my brother.”

    “My brother has been dealing with opioid addiction for the last 12 years,” Esposito said. “It was a way to bring awareness to the disease — but also a way to bring awareness to the parties that are accountable for it. For me, this is a man-made epidemic.”

    Esposito said that the project is “so much work,” but that it is all worth it. He said that there have been so many people supporting the effort that it has been incredibly moving. He currently has a large group of volunteers working together to create reports, assist with the sculpting, and other tasks involved with the movement.

    Discussing what he would like to see happen to help stop this crisis — Esposito explained that there are two sides to it.

    “The first part is moving towards accountability. It’s kind of cutting the head off the snake,” Esposito said. “For me that snake is Big Pharma. We need to hold those companies and executives accountable — whether it’s through fines or jail time — for what they have done for the past 25 years at the expense of human lives.”

    The second side, Esposito explained, “is a tough one, because the epidemic is so wide-spread.”

    “There are so many issues that I see with my brother — there’s not enough care out there, not enough recovery centers,” Esposito said. “There’s also the whole issue with incarceration. If someone gets arrested for drugs, when they get out there really is not a lot to help them with the transition.”

    In reality, there are so many issues at play in the opioid crisis, Esposito explained, that it is hard to pinpoint one single piece of legislation or program that would help to stop it. It needs to be tackled from multiple angles.

    “For us, we are trying to hold these corporations accountable and pushing for the guidelines for getting opioids are given another look,” he said.

    Esposito told the Gateway Pundit that there are more spoon drops planned for the future — and that they have a huge list of companies and people responsible that need to be shamed beyond the Sackler family.

    The Opioid Spoon Project is in the process of applying for 501C3 status, to become a nonprofit. When that happens, that will allow them to begin accepting sponsorships. He said there has been a huge amount of interest from people who want to donate either time or money, but they want to make sure they do things right.

    “There’s just so much fraud out there with people raising money,” Esposito laughed. “I don’t want to be seen like that. I want to make sure this is done right. We’ve done such a great job so far that I want to continue to uphold our moral and ethical standards.”

    Esposito said that they are thinking about creating art to raise money that way, to help fund continuing the spoon installations.

    ISIS terrorist Hoda Muthana went to join the Islamic State five years ago. Now the terrorist bride wants back in the US.

    Muthana believes she should face some counselling but not prison time for joining an Islamic army at war with the US.

    The ISIS bride spoke with ABC News this week.

    Hoda Muthana even posted terrorist tweets urging Americans to “spill the blood” of Americans online.

    Her first husband died after three months of marriage in fighting.
    She was married two other times since then.

    ABC News reported:

    In her first television interview, a 24-year-old Alabama woman who spent four years as an ISIS bride told ABC News that she’d felt obligated to go to Syria once the so-called caliphate had been announced by the terror group.

    Hoda Muthana was born in New Jersey and moved to New York and then Washington, D.C., before finally settling with her family in Alabama as a seventh-grader, she said.

    Muthana said she had a good relationship with her family but found home life very strict and longed for a more Americanized life, one in which she was able to go out and have friends.

    Once she joined ISIS, she sent messages of hate herself. She spread ISIS propaganda online, calling for attacks on Americans.

    In one tweet regarding Memorial Day weekend, she wrote: “Americans wake up. … Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood. … Veterans, patriots.”

    When ISIS announced the so-called caliphate, Muthana said, the community she’d joined “interpreted ourselves that it was obligatory upon us to go.”

    Guest post by Ted Malloch author of Common Sense Business

    A United Kingdom Parliamentary committee has issued a scathing report calling out Facebook, saying they and other like tech firms act as “digital gangsters.”

    They violate data privacy and disobey competition laws.

    They are complicit in fake news.

    The detailed report of 111 pages named Facebook by name explicitly.

    Read the entire report here.

    The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee said, “The big tech companies are failing in the duty of care they owe to their users to act against harmful content, and to respect their data privacy rights. Companies like Facebook exercise massive market power which enables them to make money by bullying the smaller technology companies and developers who rely on this platform to reach their customers. These are issues that the major tech companies are well aware of, yet continually fail to address. The guiding principle of the ‘move fast and break things’ culture often seems to be that it is better to apologize than ask permission.”

    It said, the site is designed “to conceal knowledge of and responsibility for specific decisions.”

    Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the giant Facebook, it said, showed real contempt for the UK Parliament and laws as he has repeatedly and regularly declined invitations to appear before the investigative committee.

    The claim was that he blatantly “considers himself above the law.”

    Conservative lawmaker Damian Collins, MP, who heads the media related committee, said “democracy is at risk” from malicious, targeted disinformation campaigns, often directed from countries such as Russia and spread on Facebook and other social networks.

    “We need a radical shift in the balance of power between the platforms and the people,” he said. “The age of inadequate self-regulation must come to an end.”

    The recommendations the committee offered to overcome the present situation include:

    A compulsory Code of Ethics for tech companies overseen by an independent regulator The regulator be given powers to launch legal action against companies breaching the Code of Ethics A requirement for social media companies to take down known sources of harmful content, including proven sources of disinformation Electoral reform in the U.K.

    Will the US Congress take similar suit?

    Will the Congress and the Trump Administration decry the monopolist and biased Facebook and its craven disregard for laws, public interest and privacy?

    Or will it continue, especially the tech funded Democrat Party, to cave into its extraordinary lobbying efforts and ideological favoritism?

    It’s no secret that the Silicon Valley tech giants discriminate against conservatives and conservative content.

    Facebook has been shutting down traffic to conservative websites since the 2016 election.

    The Gateway Pundit has reported extensively on the un-American policies deployed by the anti-conservative tech giants.

    Conservative activist Laura Loomer was banned from Twitter in November for exposing radical Democrat Ilhan Omar.

    Twitter and Facebook used the radical group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) to get conservative Jewish activist Laura Loomer banned on Twitter.

    Twitter and Facebook also use the far left radicals at the SPLC to crack down on and eliminate conservative content online.

    On Wednesday Laura Loomer held a protest outside the Twitter headquarters in New York City.

    In the never ending race to the bottom, Oregon state senator Shemia Fagan is introducing legislation that would lower the voting age in the state to 16.

    Citing abortion and stripping away 2nd Amendment rights, Fagan introduced the legislation on Monday, at the behest of doorbelling-for-democrats operation known as the Bus Project.

    Oregon Public Broadcasting reports:

    “It’s time to lower the voting age in Oregon and to give our young people a chance to participate in the ballot, about their decisions that affect their homes, their clean air, their future, their schools and as we’ve seen, their very lives,” Fagan said.

    The state senator pointed to the young activists who became engaged after the Parkland shooting in Florida, which left 17 people dead. They proved young people are active and should have a right to vote, Fagan said.

    Several teenagers spoke in favor of the measure alongside Fagan on Monday at the Capitol.

    “Why can I drive like an adult, pay taxes like an adult, have an abortion like an adult, be charged and sentenced like an adult, but I can’t vote like an adult?” asked Christine Bynum, a student at La Salle High School.

    “We’re experts of our own experiences,” said Connor Gabor.

    People are being sexually assaulted in their schools, Gabor said. People are being shot. Yet, they can’t vote for school board members or lawmakers, he said.

    Senate Republican Leader Herman Baertschiger, Jr., R-Grants Pass, said 16-years-old is too young to vote. 

    “… (They) are too young to enlist in the military, too young to own firearms, too young to own property, too young to enter into legal contracts, and too young to get married. But they are old enough to vote? People are not legally considered adults in this country until they are 18 years old, and I believe they shouldn’t be able to vote until then either. This is nothing more than an attempt to expand the voter rolls to sway elections,” he said. 

    The Statesman Journal adds:

    Several state lawmakers are introducing a bill that would ask voters to amend the Oregon Constitution to lower the voting age from 18 to 16 years old.

    If the bill passes, the question would go to voters in the 2020 general election. The proposal would make Oregon the first in the nation to lower the statewide voting age to 16 years old.

    Legislators backing the bill, including Sen. Shemia Fagan, D-Portland, held a press conference with high school students Monday at the Capitol to announce the legislation.

    Fagan said 16- and 17-year-olds are affected by life-and-death issues that impact their future, a point driven home by the 2018 Parkland shooting at a Florida high school.

    “Sixteen-year-olds are subject to our criminal justice system,” Fagan said. “They are couch surfing with friends while their families experience homelessness and they’re begging us to take action to protect their future.”

    Not only are the democrats targeting more naive voters, but this is partially in response to the pushback against a massive gun grab bill, that was supposedly written by high schoolers. SB501 would turn gun owners in criminals if someone steals their gun, limit the amount of ammo one can buy to just 20 rounds a month, require background checks for purchasing ammo, and require jail time for anyone who who doesn’t turn in magazines that hold more than 5 rounds. Since many have criticized the gun bill as being written by 16 year olds to tell adults what they and can’t do, democrats are now trying to adult-ize the kids.

    Kamala Harris went on to say she would smoke pot in college and listen to Tupac and Snoop.

    But as Jerry Dunleavy noted, Kamala Harris was in college 10 years before Tupac and Snoop hit the scene.
    So… She’s lying.

    And now this…
    Kamala’s father lashed out at his daughter for her cheap stereotype of Jamaicans.

    Kamala Harris’s father Donald Harris slammed his daughter for her cheap pot-shot at marijuana-smoking Jamaicans.

    Kamala told the “Breakfast Club” radio hosts her ethnicity made her a likely pot smoker.
    The Washington Times reported:

    When Sen. Kamala Harris said last week that she obviously supports marijuana legalization and has smoked the plant, she cited her ethnicity — “Half my family’s from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?”

    Her Jamaican father is not happy about that.

    In a statement to Jamaica Global Online, Donald Harris called his daughter’s remarks a “travesty” and accused her of stereotyping.

    “My dear departed grandmother … as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,” he said.

    “Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty,” Mr. Harris, an economics professor at Stanford University, concluded in a statement to the news site for the Jamaican diaspora.

    On Tuesday Lin Wood, the high-profile attorney representing Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann, filed a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post for defamation.

    The lawsuit claims that the paper “vilified” Sandmann who was seen in a viral video being confronted by far-left activist Nathan Phillips because of the fact that he is white.

    On Wednesday President Trump cheered Nick Sandmann’s lawsuit against the “Fake News” Washington Post:

    “The Washington Post ignored basic journalistic standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump.” Covington student suing WAPO. Go get them Nick. Fake News!

    The mental gymnastics that “Out” magazine writer Mathew Rodriguez jumps through to justify how Trump is racist and using “colonialist” tricks by calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality is some next-level stuff.

    “Trump’s Plan to Decriminalize Homosexuality Is an Old Racist Tactic”

    You may have heard about the Trump admin's plans to end the decriminalization of homosexuality abroad. I wrote about why…

    Posted by Mathew Rodriguez on Tuesday, February 19, 2019

    Somehow Trump is using The Gays™ as “pawns” by calling for this, but the democrats get a pass for their decades of pandering.

    Because. Reasons.

    His article on Out starts off with:

    While on its surface, the move looks like an atypically benevolent decision by the Trump administration, the details of the campaign belie a different story. Rather than actually being about helping queer people around the world, the campaign looks more like another instance of the right using queer people as a pawn to amass power and enact its own agenda.

    Rodriguez goes on to essentially defend Iran’s anti gay policies:

    The most telling detail of NBC News’ report is that his plan centers homophobic violence in Iran, who NBC News calls the administration’s “top geopolitical foe.” The plan has reportedly been spearheaded by the U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, who is also the administration’s top-ranked gay official, in response to news that a young gay man was hanged in Iran recently. Grenell has had his eyes on Iran for some time and just a week ago, he was trying to get several European nations to pass sanctions on Iran, unrelated to the country’s stance on homosexuality, to no avail.

    Homosexuality has been illegal in Iran since the theocratic 1979 Islamic Revolution. By at least one Guardian account, since the exit of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2013, enforcement of anti-gay laws has softened somewhat. Homosexuality, according to the writer, is an “open secret” and most queer people fear homophobic reaction from fellow citizens more than the authorities.

    Grennell’s sudden interest in Iran’s anti-gay laws is strikingly similar to Trump’s rhetoric after the 2016 Pulse massacre in Orlando, Florida. After the deadly shooting, Trump used the 49 deaths as a way to galvanize support for an anti-Muslim agenda rather than find a way to support LGBTQ+ people. In pushing for immigration restrictions and a Muslim ban, Trump argued, he was the true pro-LGBTQ+ candidate. Rather than honor those who died, Trump used the tragedy as a way to stoke fear among the American people, and Grennell is taking similar actions with Iran — trying to reach an economic goal by painting the administration’s opponent as anti-gay.

    “We know Trump is very focused on Iran and is looking for ways to demonize it in the public opinion and this is one area where you know the US and European countries see eye to eye on Iran,” Josh Lederman, who reported the original NBC News story, told Out in a phone interview. “So it makes for them to focus strategically on that rather than sanctions, where there’s been a big gulf between the U.S. and its allies.”

    Rodriguez then criticizes the attempts to liberate gays in Europe:

    There are several signs that this decision is denoted in a colonial sense of paternalism rather than any true altruism. According to the report, the decriminalization campaign is set to begin in Berlin where LGBTQ+ activists from across Europe will meet to hatch a plan that is “mostly concentrated in the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean.”

    That sentence alone should set off several alarm bells. First of all, the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean are huge geopolitical entities. Attitudes toward gay people differ greatly among countries and regions within those entities and attempting to gather a room of European activists on how to deal with queer issues in those regions is the definition of paternalism.

    Rodriguez ends his piece with:

    Lederman plans to sit down with Grennell as well as several activists who attended the dinner meeting in Berlin for an interview that will air on MSNBC at a later date.

    Though plans may or may not exist to invite local LGBTQ+ advocacy groups to the table, that they are not there at the plan’s inception is dangerous. Inviting European activists to solve problems in the Middle East, African or the Caribbean — which, once again, are not monolithic in the slightest — is a toothless effort, more PR than progressive.

    So when his fellow LGBT comrades are being killed in middle eastern countries, that’s somehow not a humanitarian crisis that is worthy of intervention. But preventing those who want to murder gay people from coming into the US and European countries is a humanitarian crisis that requires us to take in as many of the people as possible.

    The left, ladies and gentlemen.

    Guest post by Joe Hoft

    A 2016 DOJ criminal investigation was suppressed and buried by the DOJ/FBI that involved a major NY Democratic power broker, Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. The investigation revolved around the illegal sale of controlled US Homeland Security technology to Russia and China in the years before the 2016 election. The DOJ terminated its internal investigation despite clear and irrefutable evidence of criminal activity and hid it from the public!

    The Gateway Pundit will expose this scandal in a series of posts this week.
    Today is our initial report on this egregious scandal and coverup.

    This story begins with the Clintons and their Clinton Foundation.  It includes Russia and China, and ends with another FBI/DOJ cover-up of Clinton crimes. The FBI did such a good job covering this up, that it has not been reported – until today.

    This story started before the 2016 Presidential election. In and around 2007, Martin L. Edelman a New York attorney with Paul Hastings LLP, a Bill and Hillary Clinton close friend, and one of their largest donor bundlers met Mati Kochavi, who reportedly made his fortune in NYC real estate market. They came up with the idea of forming a group of companies and purchasing other companies that would develop and sell Homeland Security and intelligence solutions in the US and world-wide.

    Edelman (below) became the Chairman of the Board and Kochavi the CEO of their company named AGT International.

    AGT International – the firm that the Clintons helped create did all it could to generate revenues, even if it meant flagrantly breaking US law. In 2014, AGT described itself on its website as the following:

    Today’s world has more devices and sources of information than ever before, but are they truly interconnected? AGT International is revolutionizing public safety and security by connecting previously unlinked devices and data, making relevant information accessible and actionable for decision-makers and citizens alike.

    We use our deep domain expertise to collect, analyze and identify the most relevant data; and our solutions provide enhanced visibility to empower people, governments and businesses to predict, visualize and manage cities and other complex environments.

    Since its launch in 2007, AGT ($1B annual revenues) has been a pioneer, making the world safer by leading the integration of devices and new information sources. In the last five years we have connected a greater variety of sensors than anyone else in our industry while successfully delivering some of the world’s largest and most sophisticated public safety and security projects.

    AGT International leverages three of the most compelling current technology trends to revolutionize public safety and security: the Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics and Cloud Computing. Our advanced proprietary software powers cloud-based knowledge solutions that make connected sensors and data accessible and delivers services that aid complex problem solving.

    AGT is privately held with headquarters in Switzerland. The company is proud of its diversity: more than 50 nationalities are represented among its 2,400 employees.

    AGT’s International Management Team –

    AGT International incurred massive growth and went from $0 to over $8 billion in contracts and $1 billion in revenues in about 5 years. The Clintons were compensated for their support and endorsement by Kochavi and Edelman through payments to the Clinton Foundation. These payments totaled millions of dollars.

    NATIONWIDE POLL: Does President Trump Have Your Vote In 2020?

    AGT Statistics from company presentations –

    AGT Introduction – slide detailing company offering and experience –

    In 2016 at the time when there was a DOJ investigation into AGT and its illegal actions related to selling its highly sensitive defense and Homeland Security products to Russia and China, AGT updated its website and purged some references to the sensitive nature of its products.  The company also shutdown most of its operations in the US.

    Edelman and Kochovi were both involved in the business. For example, an AGT Management Meeting that includes executives from all of its business units, included Martin Edelman from Paul Hastings at the top of the list –

    AGT’s flagship platform was called “Wisdom” and “Urban Shield”.  The C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence) system and some of the other derivatives technologies were ITAR regulated.

    VOTER POLL: Should Hillary Be In Jail?

    Former President Bill Clinton endorsed AGT CEO Kochavi through public appearances and by using himself and Hillary to help the venture with political clout and support in the US.  For example, in July 2012 President Clinton joined Kochovi and Maria Bartiromo on Wall Street Journal Review promoting Kochovi’s business venture –

    Emails released by WikiLeaks show the significance of the relationship between Edelman and Kochavi and the Clintons. In an email dated November 18, 2011, describing the various donors to the Clinton Foundation there is a paragraph describing their relationships –

    Mati Kochavi
    President Clinton recently turned down a 2 year, $8 million offer to become Honorary Chairman of Mati Kochavi’s new media business venture. Mati is a former client of Teneo who we were referred to through Marty Edelman. I went back to Mati and proposed a new structure without any business connectivity other than 4 speeches for $1 million and $250k to the foundation should President Clinton choose to accept it. That would also include any broadcasting of foundation events or anything President Clinton would like exposure for on his website. This offer will be presented to President Clinton in Walker speech invitations which he can choose to decline or accept with no role or relationship with the company.

    The email lists over $50 million in donations to the Clintons in return for personal work and lists $66 million more in expected future donations from various sources, including Edelman and Kochavi.

    In another email released by WikiLeaks, Edelman sent an email to Hillary Clinton and shared the message that a Middle East Shiek was coming to Washington, D.C. –

    Sheikh Muhammid apparently coming 1st week in may. List of visits includes secstate, sectreas. Just heard. Marty

    The Sheikh most likely referred to by Edelman, is Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan from the Abu Dhabi Royal family. It’s suspected that the Sheikh provided capital through the Mubadala investment Company to Edelman and Kochavi to start up their AGT venture. Not surprisingly, the Clinton Foundation also received millions in donations from related entities in the Middle East –

    Former US President Bill Clinton has been paid $5.625 million since 2011 by Dubai’s GEMS Education to lead the company’s charity arm, according to tax returns released in the US this month [August 2015].

    Many Americans are aware of the stories of corruption surrounding the Clinton Foundation since the 2016 election. The Foundation received millions in return for the sale of a significant portion of US uranium to the Russians. Democrat Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton denied any wrong doing during the 2016 debates and even spoke of the Clinton Foundation as a superb philanthropic venture.

    Future President Donald Trump disagreed with Hillary and stated that the Foundation was a fraud – the people of Haiti, for example, whom the Clintons had ‘helped’, didn’t want the Clintons back –

    Hillary denied “pay to play” involving the Clinton Foundation where the Clintons would demand donations to their ‘Foundation’ and in return promise to perform agreed upon actions for these payments. Hillary was not honest.

    The Clintons took in millions from Edelman, Kochavi and Sheikhs in the Middle East. In return the Clintons made promises and performed actions for a price. Unfortunately, the actions taken by the Clintons and the companies and individuals who donated to them were often illegal. In our next post we’ll discuss these actions that the family of companies known as AGT International took in order to build their business worldwide. In a third post we’ll discuss how the FBI/DOJ got involved but then suppressed and eventually terminated their investigation shortly before the 2016 Presidential election.

    The two brothers involved in the Jussie Smollett hate hoax are expected to testify before a grand jury, according to sources who spoke to CBS News.

    The evidence presented could lead to a felony indictment against Jussie Smollett for filing a false police report.

    Via CBS News:

    The Jussie Smollett mystery moved into a Chicago courthouse on Tuesday. Two brothers who said the actor paid them to stage an attack on him were talking to prosecutors, sources told CBS News.

    The brothers spent the afternoon at the Cook County courthouse, where a grand jury was deliberating. It’s a possible sign of increasing legal peril for the actor who says he was assaulted three weeks ago.

    It was not immediately clear if they had actually testified yet, but they are expected to, according to sources. That could lead to an indictment of 36-year old Smollett.

    On January 29th, ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett told Chicago Police that two white Trump supporters ambushed him on the streets of Chicago at 2 AM while he was walking back to his apartment following a midnight run to Subway to grab a sandwich.

    Smollett alleged the two white males recognized him as the actor from ‘Empire,’ hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.

    The hate hoax began to unravel after it was revealed two Nigerian brothers, who were also extras on Empire were paid $4,000 to stage the attack.

    The FBI and US Postal Inspection Service are investigating whether Jussie Smollett played a role in sending a threatening and racist letter crafted from magazine clippings to the ‘Empire’ studio in Chicago prior to the fake MAGA attack. (screenshot below)

    Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx officially recused herself from Jussie Smollet’s case on Tuesday, according to Chicago police.

    No explanation was given for Foxx’s decision to recuse herself.

    First Assistant State’s Attorney Joseph Magats will be the acting state’s attorney for the Smollett inquiry, a spokesperson said in an emailed statement Tuesday, reported NBC Chicago.

    Jussie Smollett could face up to three years in prison for filing a false police report in the state of Illinois, a class 4 four felony.

    Former Newsweek editor Kurt Eichenwald has a history of attacking children.

    In March 2018 Eichenwald attacked pro-2A Parkland high school student Kyle Kashuv on Twitter.

    Eichenwald tried to backpedal with an apology to Kyle Kashuv then admitted he was actually trying to slam some other ‘high school kid with a podcast.’

    In January Kurt Eichenwald attacked the Covington High School pro-Life boys.
    Eichenwald accused the children of being infected by Trump with “Hitler valentines” and “nazi salutes.”

    Eichenwald singled out the students and exposed them.

    Eichenwald accused the Covington Catholic boys of going after black people.

    And he warned them to lawyer up.

    Kentucky Attorney Todd V. McMurtry tweeted this out on Sunday.
    McMurtry is working with Lin Wood representing the Covington Catholic boys.

    It looks like Kurt Eichenwald will need to lawyer up.

    Just for fun, I snipped all of @kurteichenwald ‘s doxing photos and sent them over to the attorneys for those kids against whom he tried to incite violence. Not smart, Kurt. #CovingtonCatholic #CovingtonBoys

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told NBC’s “Today” Show on Tuesday that members of the Gang of Eight congressional leaders knew about the deep state FBI spying on President Trump.

    Members of the Gang of 8 included Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell, Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff, Richard Burr and Mark Warner.

    The Gang of 8 members did not respond to the accusation today.

    The Politico reported:

    Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said on Tuesday that no members of the “Gang of Eight” congressional leaders objected when he informed them in May 2017 that the FBI had opened a counterintelligence investigation into President Donald Trump over his ties to Russia.

    McCabe, who was serving then as acting FBI director after Trump fired Director James Comey, said on NBC’s “Today” show that no one in the briefing objected to the bureau’s inquiry of whether Trump was being used as a Russian asset — “not on legal grounds, constitutional grounds or based on the facts.”

    The purpose of the briefing with the Democratic and Republican leaders of the House and Senate and the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate intelligence committees “was to let our congressional leadership know exactly what we’d been doing” after Comey’s firing, McCabe said.

    Fired FBI Director James Comey wasn’t too happy after President Trump called out the actions of McCabe and Rosenstein as “treasonous” on Monday.

    Trump unleashed a tweetstorm on Monday slamming “treasonous” McCabe and Rosenstein then followed up with a bathroom-themed swipe at McCabe and ‘Leakin’ James Comey.

    Monday night, President Trump trolled Comey and tweeted, “Remember this, Andrew McCabe didn’t go to the bathroom without the approval of Leakin’ James Comey!”

    Remember this, Andrew McCabe didn’t go to the bathroom without the approval of Leakin’ James Comey!

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2019

    Comey was triggered by Trump’s tweet and about an hour later fired off a holier-than-thou response to the president for dubbing him the Deep State FBI ringleader.

    JAMES COMEY: “Every time you assault and stereotype a person, you’ve ripped the social fabric. Every time you see that person deeply and make him or her feel known, you’ve woven it.” David Brooks (2/18 NY Times) is right that we all need to be weavers if we are to heal our beloved country.

    — James Comey (@Comey) February 19, 2019

    President Trump gave the former FBI Director the nickname ‘Leakin James Comey’ because he leaked classified memos of conversations he had with Trump in order to prompt a special counsel.

    Trump’s tweetstorm on Monday was in response to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s “60 Minutes” interview where he admitted DAG Rod Rosenstein was discussing wearing a wire to record President Trump to remove him via the 25th Amendment.

    The New York Times first reported on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s plot to wear a wire and oust Trump with the 25th Amendment in September.

    DAG Rosenstein began plotting Trump’s removal shortly after FBI Director Comey was fired, The New York Times reported, citing memos penned by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

    Rosenstein fiercely denies he plotted to remove President Trump from office.

    The president fired off two tweets on Monday using the words “treason” and “treasonous” to describe the actions of the coup plotters as he ramps up his fight against the Deep State.

    Popular conservative activist Scott Presler was out doing pro-Trump advocacy with a sign when a group of men allegedly threw projectiles at him and insulted him for being gay.

    Presler wrote that he “stayed calm as they approached me & insulted me for being gay. This is a hate crime.”

    I was out with my Trump sign when 3 men threw a projectile at me from their car.

    The men throwing things at him was not captured on film — but the subsequent confrontation was.

    “If you’re going to throw things at me at least do a better job. Why are you attacking a gay man?” Presler says on the video as he approaches the men. “Why are you attacking a gay Trump supporter, I’d like to know?”

    The men appear somewhat stunned as he approached them, then asked why he supports President Trump. Presler cited the just-announced effort from the administration to decriminalize homosexuality across the globe. As he was making his point, one of the men yelled “f-ck that n-gga, boy.”

    “Do you think gay people like me should be thrown off buildings because I was born homosexual?” Presler asks.

    Speaking to the Gateway Pundit, Presler said that the incident will not stop him from publicly advocating for President Trump.

    “Conservatives are verbally attacked like this on a daily basis. I’m lucky that their projectile from a moving car didn’t hit me. But I’m not going to let this experience stop me. I want to show conservatives that we can be brave. I want people to see that I’m not going to be bullied or intimidated into silence,” Presler said.

    This week has seen multiple people being targeted for harassment or threats over their support for the president. Earlier in the day, a woman locked her Twitter account after posting a video of herself harassing an elderly man in a thrift store over his Make America Great Again hat.

    Earlier this week, a couple had a gun pulled on them while shopping at Sam’s Club because they were also wearing MAGA hats.

    The mainstream media has been silent.

    THE TECH GIANTS CONTINUED THEIR WAR ON CONSERVATIVE AND ALTERNATIVE VOICES TODAY—

    The Republican Party and conservative leaders are AWOL on this issue as the tech giants continue to ban, de-platform and demonetize conservative voices.

    Conservative activist Laura Loomer was already banned from Twitter months ago. This was after Laura attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar on her own record and beliefs.
    A CAIR activist was reportedly behind the silencing of Laura Loomer.

    In January Laura Loomer was banned by PayPal.

    Democrats are now going after commerce and and incomes of their political opposition.
    This is America today.
    This is like something you would read about in a banana republic.

    And today Laura Loomer was blocked from her Chase Bank app.

    Laura Loomer told The Gateway Pundit she spoke with the company today and she is not able to access her account online.

    Laura told The Gateway Pundit:

    Chase Bank targeting a Jewish Conservative activist and journalist is a disgusting attack on our rights as Americans. First they marginalized a colored man for his support of President Donald Trump. Then they targeted combat veteran Joe Biggs. Now they have suspended my access to the Chase app which I used to manage my bills. These censorship tactics that are being carried out by left leaning executives like Jamie Dimon, Jack Dorsey, and Mark Zuckerberg are disgusting and depraved. I’m the target today. Tomorrow, it could be any one of you who dares to have a conservative opinion or idea. These Nazi like censorship tactics send a clear message that supporting Donald Trump can bankrupt, silence, and marginalize people who ought to be considered a protected class. I’m sick to my stomach knowing that I am being targeted by billionaires who have now suspended my access to my online banking via the Chase App, and I am contemplating ways to fight back. The suspension of my chase app comes just weeks after I was banned by PayPal. Why am I being treated like a terrorist in my own country? Is it now a crime in America to be a supporter of President Donald Trump? It sure feels like it.

    This is an initial report.
    We are waiting to hear more from Chase Bank.

    Republican leaders remain silent.

    There is a petition at Change.org to restore Laura Loomer’s Paypal account.

    Laura Loomer is planning a protest outside of the Twitter headquarters in New York City on Wednesday.

    Nick Sandmann’s Lawyer Files $250 MILLION Lawsuit Against the Washington Post for Their Covington Catholic Smears

    Lin Wood, the high-profile attorney representing Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann, has filed a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post for defamation.

    The lawsuit claims that the paper “vilified” the student that was seen in a viral video being confronted by far-left activist Nathan Phillips because of the fact that he is white.

    Filed in the U.S. District Court in Kentucky, the 38-page complaint says that “the Post wrongfully targeted and bullied Nicholas because he was the white, Catholic student wearing a red ‘Make America Great Again’ souvenir cap on a school field trip to the January 18 March for Life in Washington, D.C. when he was unexpectedly and suddenly confronted by Nathan Phillips (‘Phillips’), a known Native American activist, who beat a drum and sang loudly within inches of his face (‘the January 18 incident’).”

    When asked by Gateway Pundit how this compares to the lawsuit Hulk Hogan filed against Gawker, Wood explained that his client has justification for a bigger claim.

    “The Gawker case was an invasion of privacy claim. I believe Nick’s defamation case justifies an award much greater than the $150M awarded to Hulk Hogan. Nick is a minor. The media attacks on him are inexcusable,” Wood told TGP.

    The amount of the lawsuit is the same amount that Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest person, paid in cash for the Post in 2013 — the complaint notes.

    “On January 19, 20 and 21, the Post ignored the truth and falsely accused Nicholas of, among other things, ‘accost[ing]’ Phillips by ‘suddenly swarm[ing]’ him in a ‘threaten[ing]’ and ‘physically intimidat[ing]’ manner as Phillips ‘and other activists were wrapping up the march and preparing to leave,’ ‘block[ing]’ Phillips path, refusing to allow Phillips ‘to retreat,’ ‘taunting the dispersing indigenous crowd,’ chanting ‘build that wall,’ ‘Trump2020,’ or ‘go back to Africa,’ and otherwise engaging in racist and improper conduct which ended only ‘when Phillips and other activists walked away.'” the complaint reads.

    An internal investigation by the Diocese of Covington found that the students did nothing wrong — and even acted in a “laudatory” manner in the face of vile racist hate being spewed at them by the Black Israelites that Nathan Phillips was acting in “solidarity” with.

    Wood has previously announced that there are over 50 celebrities, media outlets, reporters and politicians who may also be served with lawsuits.

    Chicago police told reporters on Saturday that the they were no longer looking at ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett as a “victim” in his alleged assault. Police now view Smollett as an “active participant.”

    Smollett retained two criminal defense attorneys as his claims about being attacked by “Trump supporters” continues to crumble.

    One of Smollett’s high-powered criminal defense lawyers, Michael Monico, also represents Michael Cohen.

    Fox reported Saturday afternoon that the Nigerian brothers who were “persons of interest” and questioned by police, bought the rope found around Jussie Smollett’s neck at a local hardware store.

    Jussie Smollett paid for the rope — The Nigerian brothers were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were promised another $500 as soon as they returned back to the US.

    Smollett also had the Nigerian brothers purchase two red ball caps from Uptown Beauty Supply to wear during the attack so they would appear to be Trump supporters! What a sick, conniving fraud!

    NEW: Sources say at least one of the brothers purchased the rope used in Jussie Smollett incident at Crafty Beaver hardware store the weekend of Jan 25th.

    Now this…

    Police are investigating a report that Smollett was seen with the brothers in an elevator the night of the attack!

    The AP reported:

    Chicago police are investigating a tip that on the night “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett reported being attacked by two masked men he was in an elevator of his apartment building with two brothers later arrested and released from custody in the probe, a department spokesman told The Associated Press Tuesday.

    Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the person who lives in the building or was visiting someone there reported seeing the three together the night in question last month. Smollett said two masked men hurled racial and homophobic slurs at him, beat him and looped a rope around his neck.

    Guglielmi says police haven’t confirmed the person’s account. Detectives plan to interview the person on Tuesday.

    Last week, police announced that the “investigation had shifted” following interviews with the brothers and their release from custody without charges. Police have requested another interview with Smollett. They have declined to comment on reports that the attack was a hoax.

    Smollett’s lawyers have said the actor was angered and “victimized” by reports he may have played a role in staging the attack.

    This was a well planned out hoax attack.
    And Smollett kept the lies going all month.
    He should do serious time.

    Far-Left Activist Films Herself Harassing Elderly Man in a MAGA Hat While Shopping at the Thrift Store

    A far-left anti-ICE activist has protected her Twitter account after she filmed herself harassing an elderly man in a Make America Great Again hat at a thrift store.

    The wannabe photographer tweeted that if he was “brave enough to wear it out, I’m brave enough to call you out.”

    In the hard-to-watch video, Abib L. Ascencio films herself harassing the man as he is trying to shop.

    Ascencio set her Twitter account to private after receiving backlash for her harassment, but the Gateway Pundit was able to record the tweet in a screen grab.

    “Look at what this man is wearing at the thrift store,” the activist remarks as she sticks the camera in his face. “You should be ashamed of yourself, you poor human.”

    The man repeatedly attempts to block the camera and ignore her as she continues to berate him.

    Ascencio followed up by tweeting that he “was Cuban by the way,” for whatever reason.

    How this will go:
    Step 1 – Tweets video harassing an innocent elderly man in MAGA Hat to try to get attention
    Step 2 – Gets ratio'ed
    Step 3 – Claims to be a victim because of "Twitter harassment" to try to get attention.

    — Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) February 19, 2019

    Comedian and political commentator Tim Young put the woman on blast — with a check list of what was going to happen in response to her vile tweet.

    Young wrote:

    “How this will go:

    Step 3 – Claims to be a victim because of “Twitter harassment” to try to get attention.”

    At the time of her setting her account to private, Ascencio’s tweet was already in the process of being ratio’d with just over 700 retweets and 2,500 (mostly angry) responses. She was also already claiming that someone is attempting to “hack” her and that she is getting hate emails.

    Looks like Young’s prediction was correct.

    Earlier this week, a man and his wife had a gun pulled on them for wearing MAGA hats while shopping at Sam’s Club in Kentucky. The mainstream media was silent on the incident.

    The FBI and US Postal Inspection Service are investigating whether Jussie Smollett played a role in sending a threatening and racist letter crafted from magazine clippings to the ‘Empire’ studio in Chicago prior to the fake MAGA attack.

    According to ABC News, the letter, which was sent Jan. 22, is currently in the FBI crime lab for analysis, one of the sources said.

    According to CBS Chicago, Jussie Smollett was so upset after the racist threatening letter sent to Empire’s studio didn’t get a “bigger reaction,” that he decided to concoct the fake MAGA attack.

    “When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” a source told CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards. Other sources corroborated that information.

    On January 22nd, Jussie Smollett received a threatening racist letter crafted with letters from magazines. (screenshot below)

    The letter, which contained a white substance was mailed to Empire’s Chicago studio. The white powder turned out to be aspirin.

    As previously reported, investigators took magazines and a book of stamps as evidence from the Nigerian brothers’ apartment.

    Jussie Smollett even spoke about this racist letter in an interview last week.

    “On the letter, it had a stick figure hanging from a tree with a gun pointing toward it.” It also had “MAGA” Jussie said.

    On January 29th, Jussie Smollett told Chicago Police that two white Trump supporters ambushed him on the streets of Chicago at 2 AM while he was walking back to his apartment following a midnight run to Subway to grab a sandwich.

    Smollett alleged the two white males recognized him as the actor from ‘Empire,’ hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.

    Last Thursday, the hate hoax began to unravel after it was revealed two Nigerian brothers, who were also extras on ‘Empire’ were paid $4,000 to stage the attack, prompting Smollett to hire criminal defense lawyers and a crisis management firm.

    Jussie Smollett could face up to three years in prison for filing a false police report in the state of Illinois, a class 4 four felony.

    It also appears Jussie Smollett may have lied to FBI agents about this threatening letter. It is a federal crime to lie to the FBI.

    Former DOJ spox Sarah Isgur, Former AG Jeff Sessions

    Sarah Isgur, who served as the DOJ spokeswoman under Attorney General Jeff Sessions is now joining fake news CNN as a political editor where she will help coordinate coverage for the 2020 presidential election cycle.

    At CNN, Isgur will not play a role in covering the Department of Justice, according to a CNN official, who also said she will occasionally appear on air analyzing politics, CNN reported.

    Sarah Isgur never liked Donald Trump and actually defended Crooked Hillary on Twitter during the 2016 election.

    “Saying you will criminally prosecute your political opponent when you win is a scary and dangerous threat,” Sarah Isgur tweeted in October of 2016.

    Saying you will criminally prosecute your political opponent when you win is a scary and dangerous threat.

    — Sarah Isgur (@whignewtons) October 10, 2016

    The President was not happy when Sarah Isgur joined the Trump administration in 2017 — Another ‘Jeff Sessions beauty.’

    Was Sarah Isgur leaking to CNN the whole time she was the leading spokeswoman for the DOJ?

    Is CNN rewarding her with a job as political editor for leaking to them while she was working for Jeff Sessions?

    Donald Trump Jr. retweeted Arthur Schwartz, a political operative who called for an investigation into Sarah Isgur for potentially being a leaker.

    Of course she is. She has been leaking to CNN since she joined the administration. CNN is repaying all the favors she did for them with a job. This merits investigation. https://t.co/WzQ9Easov4

    Jeff Sessions was a horrible attorney general — he allowed the Justice Department to be hijacked by Deep State criminal coup plotters when he recused himself.

    Sessions recused himself from all things ‘Russia’ and ‘Hillary’ day one on the job which allowed for his Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint dirty cop Robert Mueller as special counsel.

    Because of Jeff Sessions serving as attorney general, we lost his Alabama Senate seat to liberal Doug Jones, ushered in a rogue special counsel who is jailing Trump’s associates on process crimes and preventing the real criminals in the Deep State from facing justice.

    Now his former spokeswoman is going to work for fake news CNN — Jeff Sessions, the gift that keeps on giving.

    JUST IN: Judicial Watch Sues Justice Department For ‘Coup’ Documents

    Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein

    Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Tuesday it filed a FOIA lawsuit against the Justice Department for all ‘coup’ documents following Andrew McCabe’s claims DAG Rosenstein discussed wearing a wire in a plot to record President Trump and ultimately remove him from office via the 25th Amendment.

    In addition to McCabe’s claims, former FBI lawyer James Baker testified to Congress in October that he was told that DAG Rod Rosenstein said two Trump cabinet members were “ready to support” removing President Trump via the 25th Amendment — Mr. Baker did not identify the two cabinet members.

    Judicial Watch said in a press release Tuesday it is seeking all records of communication of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the Office of the Attorney General Jeff Sessions, or the Office of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussing the 25th Amendment or presidential fitness.

    Additionally, the lawsuit seeks all recordings made by any official in the Office of the Attorney General or Deputy Attorney General of meetings in the Executive Office of the President or Vice President, Judicial Watch stated.

    President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton had this to say about the coup plotters and the cover-up:

    “It is no surprise that we are facing an immense cover-up of senior FBI and DOJ leadership discussions to pursue a seditious coup against President Trump. This effort to overthrow President Trump is a fundamental threat to our constitutional republic so Judicial Watch will do everything it can in the courts to expose everything possible about this lawlessness.”

    The New York Times first reported on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s plot to wear a wire and oust Trump with the 25th Amendment in September.

    DAG Rosenstein began plotting Trump’s removal shortly after FBI Director Comey was fired, The New York Times reported, citing memos penned by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

    Disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe confirmed the coup plot when he sat down with CBS’s “60 Minutes” which aired Sunday night.

    McCabe told CBS that he ordered two investigations into President Trump because he wanted to know if Trump fired FBI Director Comey to impede the Russia investigation and was Trump acting on behalf of the Russian government.

    McCabe also went into detail about DAG Rod Rosenstein’s plot to wear a wire and record President Trump. “I never get searched when I go into the White House. I could easily wear a recording device,” Rosenstein told McCabe.

    President Trump lashed out at “treasonous” McCabe and Rosenstein on Monday over their plot to remove him from office.

    The president fired off two tweets on Monday using the words “treason” and “treasonous” to describe the actions of the coup plotters as he ramps up his fight against the Deep State.

    The Trump administration is launching a global effort to decriminalize homosexuality in the dozens of nations where it is still illegal to be gay.

    The highest-profile openly gay person in the Trump administration, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, is leading the effort. According to a report from NBC News, he will be kicking off the campaign in Berlin on Tuesday evening.

    It is still illegal to be gay in approximately 70 nations. Eight of those nations even have punishment by death for homosexuality — including Saudi Arabia.

    In January, a man was publicly hanged in Iran for “having gay sex.”

    “Although the decriminalization strategy is still being hashed out, officials say it’s likely to include working with global organizations like the United Nations, the European Union and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, as well as other countries whose laws already allow for gay rights. Other U.S. embassies and diplomatic posts throughout Europe, including the U.S. Mission to the E.U., are involved, as is the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor,” NBC News reports.

    Grenell called last month’s hanging of the man in Iran “a wake-up call for anyone who supports basic human rights.”

    “This is not the first time the Iranian regime has put a gay man to death with the usual outrageous claims of prostitution, kidnapping, or even pedophilia. And it sadly won’t be the last time,” Grenell wrote in the German paper Bild. “Barbaric public executions are all too common in a country where consensual homosexual relationships are criminalized and punishable by flogging and death.”

    The effort is, in part, an effort to reframe the debate about Iran as a human rights issue.

    “New U.S. pressure on those countries to change their laws comes as the Trump administration is working to use nascent ties between Arab nations and Israel to form a powerful axis against Iran, a strategy that dovetails with the administration’s planned rollout of an ambitious plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace,” NBC’s report concludes.

    Comedian Dale Cover has reenacted the Jussie Smollett attack — and it is absolutely hilarious.

    The video cuts between the stand-up comic reenacting Smollett’s infamous “Good Morning America” interview about the “assault” and what seems to have actually happened.

    “What Happened to Jussie Smollett from Empire. Was it a hate crime or a hoax. In this video, we got breaking news showing the real story. We find out just who the two Nigerian’s were and their alleged role in the staged attack,” the video description reads.

    The parody opens up with Smollett recounting his version of the story on “Good Morning America.”

    After showing Smollett walking across the street, the video cuts to two black men, portraying the Nigerian brothers who claim that they were paid by the Empire actor to stage the attack. One of the men screams, “Empire! Listen to f-cking motherf-cking s—t,” with a heavy accent. The second man then says, “this is MAGA country — Make America Great Again” while holding up a thin noose.

    “Stop, wait a minute, you’ve got a dashiki on and you don’t even sound American,” Cover’s Smollett character asserts. “I asked for two goons to help me Make America Great Again and they sent two Nigerians — what is this, 1619?”

    A John Oliver billboard in Los Angeles has been hit with street art turning the image into an NPC ‘Orange Man Bad’ meme.

    The latest street art is the second HBO billboard to be targeted by right-wing street artist “The Faction” in less than a month. Earlier this month they targeted a advertising Real Time with Bill Maher.

    The billboard advertising Last Week Tonight With John Oliver on the corner of La Cienega Boulevard and Pico Boulevard now reads: “The Orange Man Bad Show with John Oliver.” It features the comedian peeking over the side as a non-playable character — or NPC.

    The Faction confirmed to Gateway Pundit that the art is theirs.

    After we fixed @billmaher’s billboard last month, we didn’t want @iamjohnoliver to feel left out. 🙁

    Doesn’t he look better showing his true colors?! pic.twitter.com/i1tRSL0ASA

    — The Faction (@TheFaction1776) February 18, 2019

    Earlier this month, The Faction also made Maher into an NPC. The caption was also changed to “the whole narrative and nothing but.”

    When asked about the billboard campaign, the Faction sent TGP this statement (provided in full):

    “The recent rains in LA washed away the top layer of this billboard, revealing the truth underneath — that John Oliver is an NPC programmed by his masters to bash Trump.

    Like Bill Maher, Cryin’ Jimmy Kimmel, Steven Colbert and Trevor ‘Token’ Noah, John Oliver is just one of the spigots used to spew the flood of anti-Trump hatred that HBO, Netflix, NBC, ABC, CBS and their armies of sniveling soy-boy writers are overflowing with.

    Oliver is the same Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer as Maher and his commiepatriots, but with an English accent. That’s no problem for the clapping seals in his audience. They are thought-slaves who also believe that there was a discernible difference between the two parties and that Hillary was somehow going to have different policies than Jeb(!). They can’t stand that Trump’s victory revealed that Coke and Pepsi were, in fact, the same garbage.

    We hear that David Spade is entering the late night arena. If he makes only ninety percent anti-Trump jokes per episode instead of the requisite one hundred percent dictated by the pedophiles and rapists at the tippy-top of the Hollywood trash-pile, he will be a breakout hit. But given that actors are only capable of pretending to be brave in movies and tv shows in which their actual safety is guaranteed by stunt men, he may have trouble getting guests if he’s deemed too patriotic and pro-Trump.”

    Right-wing street artist Sabo also hit the streets of Los Angeles this week, taking aim at Jussie Smollett in an impressive new poster campaign.

    The Faction told The Gateway Pundit that the campaigns weren’t planned to coincide and were just a coincidence.

    One of the posters from Sabo features Smollett in a Make America Great Again hat and the words “this is MAGA country” behind him.

    “For your consideration — Jussie Smollett for best actor in a drama,” the poster reads — along with the title “BlacKKKlansman.”

    Other posters also took aim at Democratic Governor Ralph Northam along with Smollett.

    And the media has already spun away the fact that Bernie spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union. From VERY FAKE Bloomberg News.

    How Bernie Sanders Spent His Soviet ‘Honeymoon’

    The state of the country in 1988 wouldn’t have made him a communist sympathizer.

    Senator Bernie Sanders’s long-ago “honeymoon” in the Soviet Union is held up by his opponents as evidence of dubious judgment, and even Communist sympathies or anti-American tendencies. The self-described socialist was questioned about the visit during a debate of Democratic presidential candidates in October as a way to raise doubts about his electability.

    Those descriptions and concerns are based on distortions and exaggerations: The trip, which began the day after his wedding with his second wife, Jane, in May 1988, was undertaken as part of Sanders’ official duties as mayor of Burlington, Vermont. And in any case, most of his critics seem to have forgotten that the Soviet Union at the time was hardly the place for an admirer of communism to find comfort.

    This is of course total nonsense. When the Berlin wall came down in November of 1989, it was a shock to the whole world. Western intel agencies, especially in the US, have been roundly mocked for missing the signs that the USSR was about to splinter.

    Unless Bloomberg’s Leonid Bershidsky is implying that Bernie knew the brutal and genocidal soviet empire was dying when HE chose to make the Soviet city of Yaroslavl the sister city of Burlington, VT..? Did Bernie know before the rest of America and all her intel assets that the wall was coming down, and so he jumped at the opportunity to forge a sister city tie to help hasten the collapse?! Bullsh*t.

    Here’s footage of Bernie partying with his Soviet pals more than a year before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    Bernie didn’t care that Berlin was a prison thanks to the Communist wall. But Bernie’s against walls now:

    I oppose tying comprehensive immigration reform to unrealistic and unwise border patrol proposals like the building of a border fence.

    The Young America’s Foundation has released their 25th annual Comedy & Tragedy list of leftist courses at colleges across the nation — and many take aim directly at President Donald Trump in their descriptions.

    The organization reviews and audits course catalogs, textbook requirements, commencement speakers, and “other key metrics that show the true state of higher education in America.”

    “Many of the courses and descriptions listed in this year’s report may seem comical at first glance, but the situation that continues to unfold on America’s campuses is hardly a laughing matter. Beyond the inane, identity- and intersectionality-obsessed topics, these classes advance a liberal agenda, malign conservatives and their values, and shut out ideological diversity,” the organization wrote of their report.

    At Indiana University, they are offering a course on “Global Anarchy” in which they explore “everything from Antifa in the streets of Trump’s America and anarcho-feminist essays to DIY pink scenes and apocalyptic zombie scenarios, this course seeks to advance a basic understanding of anarchist ideals, practices, and imaginaries.”

    Meanwhile, at Middlebury College, they are offering a class on “American Misogyny” where they “conclude by examining how misogyny informs U.S. culture and politics in the Trump era. Throughout the course, we will consider how discourses of misogyny are inflected by white, cisgender, ableist, agist, and class privilege.”

    At Columbia University, a course on “Fascism: Aesthetics & Politics” takes aim squarely at the president. The description says that “the election of President Donald Trump has renewed interest in the examination of fascism- as an ideology, as a political movement and as a form of governance.” The university is also offering classes on “practicing intersectionality” and “gender wars.”

    Over at Cornell, a course titled “America Confronts the World” will make students explore how “Donald Trump and Barack Obama give us two visions of America and of the world: xenophobic nationalism and pragmatic cosmopolitanism.” Another course at the university, “Histories of the Apocalypse: From Nostradamus to Nuclear Winter” begins their description by saying that “Brexit, immigration, and the election of Donald Trump have all been recently heralded as signs of an imminent apocalypse.”

    The Empire strikes back!

    Jussie Smollett’s scenes are being slashed for production on ‘Empire’ this week, according to numerous sources who spoke to both TMZ and Deadline.

    TMZ was told that in the past 24 hours, writers have been busy making edits and the script has undergone multiple revisions.

    TMZ reported:

    Production sources tell TMZ … Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode — which is being shot now — but, 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86’d.

    As for the remaining 4 scenes … we’re told he’s no longer the focus. The scene features an ensemble, meaning he’s flanked by a number of cast members.

    With his duties pared down, Jussie will be spending way less time on set. Instead of working every day this week, we’re told Jussie’s working Friday and possibly Thursday, and he won’t be rehearsing.

    It is also being reported that Jussie Smollett’s case may be heading to a grand jury as early as Tuesday.

    The evidence presented could lead to a felony indictment against Jussie Smollett for filing a false police report.

    On January 29th, Jussie Smollett told Chicago Police that two white Trump supporters ambushed him on the streets of Chicago at 2 AM while he was walking back to his apartment following a midnight run to Subway to grab a sandwich.

    Smollett alleged the two white males recognized him as the actor from ‘Empire,’ hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.

    The hate hoax began to unravel after it was revealed two Nigerian brothers, who were also extras on Empire were paid $4,000 to stage the attack.

    It is also being reported that Smollett and the Nigerian brothers were behind that racist threatening letter sent to Empire’s Chicago studio.

    Jussie Smollett could face up to three years in prison for filing a false police report in the state of Illinois, a class 4 four felony.

    Corrupt Obama judge Amy Berman Jackson may jail Roger Stone over an Instagram post he published this week.

    On Tuesday, Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Roger Stone to appear in court this week to explain his since-deleted Instagram post where he slammed the judge assigned to his case.

    The Judge said Roger Stone needs to show cause at a hearing as to why his Instagram post did not violate a limited gag order on the case, reported Reuters.

    Roger Stone shared an image of Judge Amy Berman Jackson with a neo-pagan symbol in the background — and the media immediately erupted and claimed Roger Stone was “sending a message” to the judge by placing “crosshairs” behind her head. (screenshot below)

    “Through legal trickery Deep State hitman Robert Mueller has guaranteed that my upcoming show trial is before Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointed Judge who dismissed the Benghazi charges again Hillary Clinton and incarcerated Paul Manafort prior to his conviction for any crime,” Stone wrote in the caption.

    Roger Stone later “humbly” apologized for sharing the image on his Instagram page.

    VOTE: Should President Trump Pardon Roger Stone?

    “A photo of Judge Jackson posted on my Instagram has been misinterpreted. This was a random photo taken from the Internet. Any inference that this was meant to somehow disrespect the Court is categorically false. What some say are crosshairs are in fact the logo of the organization that originally posted it something called corruption central. They use the logo in many photos.” Stone said in a statement to ABC News.
